Dr. Amro Foda grew up in Edmonton AB, where he completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Alberta. He obtained a Bachelor of Science degree with distinction in the areas of biological and physical sciences. He then attended the University of British Columbia, where he obtained his dental degree. It was during his dental school education when he decided to pursue subspecialty training in the field of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. His desire to further his education led him to New York City, where he spent 4 years developing his skills at the Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
At Montefiore, Dr. Foda practiced a full scope of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery including dentoalveolar surgery (dental extractions, biopsies, alveoloplasty etc.), orthognathic surgery, dental implant reconstruction, management of maxillofacial trauma, TMJ surgery, pre-prosthetic surgery, bone graft reconstruction, and management of severe odontogenic infections. He also participated in various off-service rotations including internal medicine, general surgery, anesthesia, surgical intensive care, emergency medicine, otorhinolaryngology, and plastic surgery. He is also proficient in the safe delivery of outpatient intravenous deep sedation/general anesthesia.
After completing his residency, he subsequently completed the National Dental Specialty Examination of Canada in his field. Although he greatly enjoyed his time in New York City, his love for Canada brought him back to the west coast. He is currently working in private practice in the Vancouver area. He is also a part time clinical instructor at the University of British Columbia’s Faculty of Dentistry, where he teaches in the Oral Surgery clinic. He also maintains hospital affiliations with Vancouver General Hospital, and the University of British Columbia Hospital. In his spare time, Dr. Foda enjoys travelling, playing the guitar and drums, playing soccer, snowboarding and trail biking.
